yeah I was being flippant above, but I'm sure there was some, uhh, "deeper content" and that the language presented in the published story may have been soft-pedalled a bit.

Modern country I don't care much for , but this leans more retro to my ears, so I have no issues with it. I'd be much more bothered if it was a Country Rap version!
